Enjoy the following inspiring words by Jean Houston.

You are more than you pretend to be
You are more than what most eyes can see
You are more than all your history
Look inside and you will find
There's glory in your mind
Come be the kind of person you would be....

You are more than what your leaders say
You are more than how you earn your pay
You are more than what you seem today
So drop that loser's mask
You're equal to the task
The question you should ask is who you are....

You are more than what the preachers shout
You are more, come let your spirit out
You are more, your soul shall have no doubt
Arise, become awake
With every breath you take
The god within will ache to be....

You are more than some statistic chart
You are more than the sum of all your parts
You are more inside your heart of hearts
You know that it is true
This being that is you
Has miracles to do

Our senses are indeed
our doors and windows on this world,
in a very real sense
the key to the unlocking of meaning and the wellspring of creativity.

The tendrils of a new,
deeper form of spirituality are growing.
It's the greening under the surface crust
of consciousness and social paradigm.

I firmly believe that all human beings
have access to extraordinary energies and powers.
Judging from accounts of mystical experience,
heightened creativity, or exceptional performance by athletes and artists,
we harbor a greater life than we know.
There we go beyond those limited and limiting patterns
of body, emotions, volition, and understanding
that have been keeping us in dry-dock.
Instead we become available to our capacity
for a larger life in body, mind, and spirit.
In this state we know great torrents of delight.

At the height of laughter,
the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.

The ecological crisis
is doing what no other crisis in history has ever done,
challenging us to a realization of a new humanity.

We all have the extraordinary coded within us,
waiting to be released.

Try to spend a few moments each day
holding a picture of your body and your mind
in a state of splendid health.

In our time we have come to the stage where the real work of humanity begins. It is the time where we partner Creation in the creation of ourselves, in the restoration of the biosphere, the regenesis of society and in the assuming of a new type of culture; the culture of Kindness. Herein, we live daily life reconnected and recharged by the Source, so as to become liberated and engaged in the world and in our tasks.”
